Thanks for viewing.
very nioce, 2nd one wins it for me the back lighting on the reeds? is stunning
Love the first two...how do you get such contrast on your B&Ws? If it's dodging and burning, what guidelines d0 you use (my attempts ususally look like cr@p).
Lostprophet, love the avatar, are you a Collide fan?
Another vote for #1 and #2. I love how you can see the sun rays in both and I really like the light on the cattails.:thumbup:
I also would like an answer to the first question as my B&W conversions suck
and yep I like Collide
I'm with everyone on ## 1 and 2 here, 2 being my favourite!
Tips about B&W conversion.... well it's a matter of personal taste.
I do it different every time, but usually it works with playing with individual colours curves and then monochroming via channel mixer between red and blue. Then dodging and burning if I feel the need.
I have no set way of converting.
Damn, then it seems to come down to ability and artistic talent. I'm screwed. :mrgreen:
I just the same as trying to replicate the effects of different filters in B&W photography.
The sky in these shots look like they could have been taken using an orange filter.
Burn and dodge are your friend aswell.
When used properly.... anyway
I'm actually starting to get good at burning and dodging in the darkroom aswell, so I guess thats giving me extra understanding.
Hmmmm, good way to think about it...that gives me some ideas...thanks!
